So here we are at the final round! I love the Brands Hatch GP circuit its defiantly one of my favourite tracks on the BSB calender. As its the last round I obviously wanted to end with two good results. We had a good qualifying and I was 6th EVO, 15th overall, the times were close and all the EVO's were together so I knew it was going to be a close race.
I fought into the first corner and stayed in my position of 6th EVO, I was right behind Paulo and I knew i had to stay with him if i had a chance of getting into the top 3, after about 4 laps I was dropping off slightly from Paulo I just couldn't seem to keep the pace, it then started to rain and the red flag came out with 3 laps to go and I finished 6th EVO 2 seconds behind Paulo and the group in front. I was dissapointed as I wanted a better result and I couldn't work out why I didn't have the pace of the riders in front. Out of the faster turns they just seemed to get the power down better than I could but through the slow turns such as Druids or Graham hill bend I was quicker. I had a few ideas for race 2 so I knew I had to get a strong start and push on.
I got a great start and was right in the mix with Paulo, Neill and Estment. Perrin and Collier pulled a slight gap, but I stayed with my group for 3rd, after about 6/7 laps they then started to pull away again for whatever reason, same story as race 1, maybe I'd been to hard on my tyres or whatever but I could keep the pace and I dropped back on my own. I managed to pass Neill though so i moved up to 5th and then Paulo had an issue and pulled in so I found myself 4th 2 seconds behind Estment. Sam Thompson, Pett and Allingham caught up with me and we had a good battle for 4th with some good racing and overtaking which was good fun, but i was frustrated again as I know I have the pace to keep with the front guys but for whatever reason I couldn't. But I was pleased with a strong 4th place finish!
